Rose Coco Bean Aubergine Stew

Rose Coco Bean Aubergine Stew recipe.

Tremble in anticipation and divulge in ecstasy. And, ingest.

Soft pinkish-brown Rose Coco Bean Aubergine Stew with smoked paprika, ginger and garlic, with a touch of citrus lemon.

This dish will obliterate your belief that vegan food can’t be made with simple ingredients.

Make this:

  • When you fancy a dish reminiscent but takes baked beans up a notch
  • When a hearty meal is much needed as the dark evenings draw in
  • When you’ve just had a run out in the blistering cold and a dish that’ll have you fixed up in no time tickles your fancy

Rose Coco Bean Aubergine Stew was inspired when I had been living in Lisbon. I had a budget of Euro 8, because I had expenses I needed to meet at that time. And, this was a cheap staple dish that kept me nourished.

Rose Coco beans are often referred to as crab eye beans, or borlotti beans. They are a staple to Indian cuisine.

Rose Coco Bean Aubergine Stew is vegan.
